Joe from what you describe it sounds as if the closed captioning display is turning on either through the tv or cable box if your's has that capability. Go to the menu on the tv and go to the setup option, from there you should be able to locate the closed captioning option and turn it off or disable it. The same may need to be done with your cable box if it is closed captioning compatible. I hope this is of some assistance to you. If I can help in anyway please let me know.
It has something to do with the closed captioning. He must have hit the closed caption button on your remote. You need to either turn the closed caption off or make another selection under closed captioning like cc1 cc2. Just keep making selections until the box goes away.
do you have a cable box? is it a motarola box? is it HD box?
if the answer is yes to all of the above then leave the TV on and shut the power off on the cable box on the front of the box. then hit menu on the front of the box, an intrenal menu will come up. using the curser buttons (up/down) scroll to where it says "close caption : disable" use the curser buttons (left/ right) to highlight the disable the use the up/down curser to the "Enable" position now hit menu again then power to turn it back on.
you see close caption is not encoded thru Y, Pb, Pr cables nor is it thru HDMI and no set has decoding for closed caption thru this connection. so it has to be done thru the box.
hi i had the same problem with my sony kdl-40v2500 with the comcast cable box.The fixing is you have to do it through cable box.Leave your tv on and turn your cable box off and hit the menu button twice on the remote repeat in till you see cable menu on the screen and you can eneble-desable the caption through there
We had the exact same problem just yesterday when we bought our Sony 46" Bravia LCD. Nobody, neither Comcast Cable or Sony seemed to really know how to get rid of the closed caption at first and we did have a Motorola box - the box is the problem, not the tv. Here is step-by-step instructions that worked for us.
1. While TV is on, power DCT (Digital Cable Terminal) off
2. Press and hold "menu" button on digital terminal (the screen below will appear)
3. Using Up/Down cursors, highlight "Close Caption"
4. Using Left/Right cursors, put - Close Caption: Disabled
5. Press "ok-select"
6. When done, press "power" to exit menu
7. Press "power" again to turn DCT on
If you go through these steps slowly, you should have a caption-free screen!
